The Marine Corps is officially getting an exoskeleton to haul heavy crap like Ripley in ‘Aliens’ | Task & Purpose

A super cool looking exoskeleton will help Marines say goodbye to the days of hustling and balancing heavy equipment while traveling. It can lift up to 200 pounds for 6 hours and is rechargeable. Salt Lake City-based Sarcos Defense has been awarded a contract to make this happen by the end of 2020. Currently, other branches of the military are looking into this as well.
